We are an educational platform and community of people that celebrate personal growth and inclusivity. It is open, accessible, and welcomes everyone who is interested in non-formal learning, mobility opportunities, and contributing their verse to society.
Active Rainbow was founded in 2014 and started at first as a self-organized initiative. It is active in the field of youth work and implementation of learning programs already for the past 7 years, working on a local, national, and international level through direct cooperation with different European organizations, collectives, and informal groups. During this time, Active Rainbow contributed to a great extent in building the capacity of its partner organizations in the field of inclusive education for LGBTQIA+ youth and through its projects impacting the local and European communities.
In March 2021, the platform proudly established its 1st branch, as a registered organization in Latvia.
